Equal Justice Initiative Aug 7
The Louisiana Supreme Court refused to review the life sentence imposed on a man for attempted theft of hedge clippers. The court's only Black justice dissented and identified this as a harsh legacy of racially-biased punishment.

Tell Congress: we expect them to pass relief legislation that does more than help corporations and protect businesses. We need legislation that helps people stay in their homes, feed their families and weather this storm.

The billionaire class needs to be abolished. There’s less than 1K of them, they account for ~0.0002% of the total population but they control ~30-40% of all wealth in the country. We can literally write all their names on a sheet of paper. It’s a practical place to start.

War is only ever profound, collective failure. When we glorify war while teaching history, we learn that sometimes mass death is good. God, teach us a better way.

People’s inability to distinguish between property & human life is terrifying, an indication of how spiritually dead this society is.

"The initiative is a way for her church to make amends. She noted that the church began after Dutch ... bought the land from the Lenape, a Native American nation, in an unfair transaction. Its early clergy also included slaveholders."

Xian life isn't abt pleasing God the finger-shaker & judge. It isn't about believing for the sake of heaven later. It's abt entering a relationship in the present that begins to change everything now. Spirituality is...opening the heart to God who is already here. - Marcus Borg
